Replacement tremolo for JS 100

Hi,
Been loving my JS 100 for past 10 years. Can anyone suggest a replacement tremolo system? Not sure what is available in today's market here in the US as most posts on this topic are years old! Also how do I find out what tremolo my guitar came with?
I would like to have a new tremolo without having to mod.

Re: Replacement tremolo for JS 100

older js100s with the crappy trs trem you could easily replace with a floyd

the newer js100s had the edge 2 or 3 bridges not sure what would drop in with out mods

Thanks guys for the response. Honestly I'm unable to make the difference betwen the 2 pics.They both look the same.So I decided to post a pic of what's on my guitar if that would help in identify.(Ignore the fishman pup below the tremolo).

Re: Replacement tremolo for JS 100

Ignore the troll. That trem is definitely not the Lo-Trs II trem.

Re: Replacement tremolo for JS 100

the best advice is to throw away this very bad guitar
a shame for an artist
buy a js 2450

or you are stupid or you are stupid or you un joli trou du cul

the only troll here is YOU
why ?
the most reason is you can't accept any other opinions

SO IT IS THE famous aspect of people with no brain or just a mini little brain
a teenager ? are you 10 years old?
just a little brain so you have closed opinions like your mind
you like red cars
black shoes
the js 1200 but not the js 100
you don't like any critics about Satriani even if you don't know him and you can't play more than one chord

a very closed spirit so when someone does not think like you : hey you are a troll
so the only STUPID MAN OF THIS GROUP IS MOEBIUS

a stupid name for stupid comment
good luck in your life
it will be hard for sure like everybody can see with your comment so respectful
so good vs JOE
you really don't like Satriani
real fans are not so stupid

i report you to the big boss
good luck man

Aren't there forum rules about this kind of thing? Totally uncalled for. This guy has been on a roll lately. Feel free to report me as well if you want but I am being courteous and polite just pointing out that you are not being such.

Re: Replacement tremolo for JS 100

i don't understand all you wrote

but i want a very hard act against Moebius because he talks in a bad way

we can have different opinions

there are the simple fans without any experience or talent and ears : " joe you are a genius and all your guitar gear are fantastic"

and there are the others with experience and who play guitar so not like moe something
and who know the js 100 is a very bad guitar and no need to change the tremolo but mob can not really understand that giving bad advice

si i prefer smart people with experience
who know a js is not a LP so different for the bends

who know the fred is not a powerful pickup so enough of these kind of stupid teenagers believing they have the right to tell to the other what to think
so moebius : take your guitar where you think and learn the piano it will be better for us than reading your micro comment never interesting
just to exist to people here but sorry nobody cares
if you were like joe you would be smart
good guitarist
respecful

i don't know you but what you show is very bad
so exit moebius please: a ban will be good to let every REAL fans to have their opinions

that's all
so boring guy ! how are you ?11? or 12?nobody cares but what i don't like is public shame
so sorry i had to tell you in public too but
go to school it will be better for you to learn how to talk to adults
a real problem for us

Re: Replacement tremolo for JS 100

I agree that a JS100 is an inferior guitar to a Japanese model but not everyone can afford to just buy a japanese one. Have some respect for the people that can afford only a JS100 they have the right to enjoy their JS guitar too. I started with a JS100 and it served my needs for quite a while. Let's all be nice and respectful. Moderators? You guys seeing this thread?
